Icy, foggy ... not good on the roads or the airports

iced up on the inside of the windscreen

It’s really bad when it’s so cold outside that you need to scrape the inside of your windscreen because it has iced up ... hence the white dandruff scattered across the dashboard. A good thick coating ... after five minutes the car’s air blower hadn’t made much of a dent in it.

Foggy Belfast

After last week’s fogginess that badly affected flights in and out of Belfast City Airport, I asked the airport if they’d any plans for CAT III instrument landing facilities ... no reply yet.

But this morning, the heavy fog over Belfast has once again caused major disruption over at St Georges.

Belfast City Airport website arrivals

The early morning arrival from Heathrow diverted to Belfast International (Aldergrove). Ryanair’s flight from East Midlands diverted to their base in City of Derry ... quite a bus journey if you want to get your car out of the car park!

Belfast City Airport departures

Departures aren’t looking good ... though the Flybe to Gatwick is about to leave a mere two hours late.

Belfast International arrivals

Up at Belfast International, the fog is having much less impact with only the bmibaby arrival from East Midlands badly delayed.

Speaking of airports, let's start a debate about an underground rail link into the heart of Aldergrove airport.
And not in two years' time!
